I wanted to blog sooner but this week has gotten away with me and I have been crazy busy. First off we rescued this poor little pup who was being abandon because the owner was moving into a place that did not allow pets. She had just bought her from the pet store about 2 weeks ago. She is only 4 months old so we took her home hoping that Ivan would get along with her.......
Ivan did NOT get along with her. He is 8 months now and we are getting him neutered at the end of this month which means he is getting a little on the frisky side. I could not leave these two alone for more than 1 min before Ivan would try to pounce on the poor girl which would end up turning into a fight between the two. NOT good I tell you. So there was that.....
And then I recently did a Sale on Fab.com with my other job and it was a huge success so I have been have been shipping stuff out like a mad women. The picture below is not even all of it. More and more. The sale is going on for 5 more days.
But on to a more pressing matter at hand. My sister Jen and I have been on the search to find the best Gu replacement out there. We are both sick of Gu's and many of those other types of race day carbo packets to keep you going. She texted me last night saying that she might try breaking up a Lara bar and eating during her run. I thought that was a great idea. Kind Bars are my favorite, I love eating them and there are so many options, so I thought I might try it too. You can read up more about the difference between Lar bars and Kind bars HERE.
Have you every tried to replace your Gu with a bar? If so what worked or didn't work for you?
Does a Treadmill ever seem harder than running outside?
